The studio starts with an intriguing trip to experience the immersive atmosphere of the dark and cold winter on the Finnmark plateau. We will meet the actors in the landscape and analyze the potential conflicts in these contested territories. The silent knowledge from traditional reindeer husbandry is confronted by the global demand for minerals, and the physical impact of the mining industry. We will investigate beyond the obvious and seek out knowledge that is not so easily accessible, and we will trace the tracks of money connected to global powers and economies. Basically is the value of the landscape as a common renewable resource at risk. The studio objective is to act as landscape architects in a situation where the historical landscape can be transformed into a complete new reality, and where its traditional agents of humans and animals can be displaced.
